Do the distances to the other rings vary? Could the gateway to llus/New Terra just be the closest and thus the target chosen by the renegade Belters for settlement?There is no other exoplanet that has similar patterns on their Moons. Why that didn't flag the people that there might be something wrong with the system is weird.
I think they had to find something for Bobbie and Drummer to do to keep them in the series while the main action was taking place on the new planet. Maybe they'll get more screen time in later episodes or in season 5, which I understand has already been approved by Amazon.Oh Bobby, why did you had to choose wrongly? Drummer made a right choice for letting the pirate captain go, but Bobby should have not involved herself in the risky business.
The Martians need a new purpose. With access to more than a 1,000 new planets (if Avasarala's choke hold on the ring can ever be broken), spending decades if not centuries terraforming Mars must have lost a lot of its urgency. The only thing Mars has left going for it, as real estate agents would say, is location, location, location! The Martians have joined the Belters in preferring a nice, "normal" planet to call home.Although it was strange that Bobby's airpack wasn't fully recharged. It is as if some degree of sloppiness has been introduced to the Martian system. Could it be an attempt of sabotage?
Well, it's the wrong color to be caused by the Blue Goo. Green Gloop?That cannot be anything that the machine produced? It has to be related to whatever started the roots. Not just because they are all green, but because they are species from same biosphere. They have to be connected somehow. The worrisome bit is the eyes. Why infect them and not other places like the mouth?
